The Best Speakers for Music Listening via Bluetooth
Let’s begin with some Polk speakers.
Small in size big in performance the TSi100 is a great speaker to use for wall-hanging surround speakers in a TSi Series home theater (heavy duty wall-hanging brackets are built right in). Or use them as main speakers in a small room where performance is key but size is a consideration. Add a subwoofer to a pair of TSi100s and you have a truly dynamic high performance stereo pair for a truly surprising price. Unlike other speakers in this price range TSi enclosures are constructed of extensively braced solid MDF with 3/4-inch baffles. This virtually eliminates internal resonances and damps energy-stealing vibrations for more efficient operation and more transparent sound.
Surprisingly deep musical bass response thanks to critically tuned flared port venting system which minimizes port noise (“chuffing”) and smooths the turbulence of port air flow to reveal big full-bodied bass that blends effortlessly with the speaker’s overall dynamics. The Klippel motor optimization uses laser measurement technology to ensure a smooth excursion path at either end of the volume spectrum for uniform performance at both low and high volumes. With bluetooth technology added in, these speakers are incredible.
This pair of compact, affordable R-51Ms continues the Klipsch tradition of crafting high-quality speakers that offer powerful, lifelike sound. The horn-loaded tweeter — a hallmark of the Klipsch brand — produces clear, detailed highs. Each speaker’s copper spun 4″ woofer delivers solid midrange and bass response. And binding post wire terminals offer easy, secure wire connections. Make these speakers part of a two-channel music system that doesn’t take up much shelf space. Or use a pair of R-41Ms as the front channels of a compact surround sound speaker system.
The speakers also feature removable grilles offer a clean, streamlined look, a rear-firing port that provides fast, efficient airflow from the cabinet for clear, powerful bass, and of course, bluetooth capabilities. Klipsch is the name in audio, and these speakers show off some of their best features and technology.

Volume, treble and bass dials provide greater control over your home party, and the energy-saving design makes a minimal impact on your bills. The remote control, RCA cable and speaker wire included with these Insignia Bluetooth bookshelf speakers ensure a quick-and-easy installation.
Insignia is the brand that Best Buy technically owns and all of their products are discounted in comparison to the bigger names in electronics. That does not mean that they lack quality, they just happened to be a generic brand, something we don’t always see in electronics.
They do everything you need them to, just don’t expect anything out of the ordinary in terms of quality. They are, however, often available as an open-box item, and they are always available for the most part in store and online. Some of these speakers can’t be purchased in store, so this is a plus for these Insignia Bookshelf Speakers.

What you get is the high-quality audio performance you’d never expect from such simple a compact design.

Featuring 4” bass drivers and 3/4” silk-diaphragm tweeter drivers, the R1010BT Bluetooth bookshelf speaker is engineered to deliver commanding sound with subtlety and details.
Dual integrated line-in jacks for connection to other analog audio devices, saving you the trouble of plugging in and pulling out. The tone control encompasses bass and volume together with the dynamic treble enhancement on port A which is dedicated to catering to your playback preference.
For a personalized listening experience, you’ll find the bass and volume adjustment dials at the back of this bookshelf speaker. The R1010BT Bluetooth bookshelf speakers also feature dual stereo line-in ports. Most of all, it is Bluetooth ready.
These speakers are a favorite because they look as good as they sound. You won’t want to hide these away if you own them, in fact, they will probably draw eyes more than the turntable itself.

An ideal speaker for computers, gaming consoles and mini home theaters. Its comfortable in just about any environment, giving it the diverse functionality suited for any lifestyle.
